WOW! It's been a world wind around here since my "bags" trip... Busy, trying to get things done.... thinking, back acting up a bit...ugh, and planning for the Holiday season that is coming WAY TOO FAST!
Then.... this picture is a bit dark, couldn't get the flash to go off ...ugh... So for a long time now.. I have wanted to do something with our front window... Really would like to take the blinds down, but we need them for some privacy. Being in a sub-division and the main path to the park and bike path.. At night I like the blinds closed... no window peeking here... LOL... BUT....what to do... So I had cheap little valances in the windows under the blinds... for years... was OK... but I wanted to "soften" up the look some how...and it is a big window....HMMMM.... Thoughts, that I really didn't think would work.... but then again maybe?
Now onto the next project... See the Christmas tree branch on the floor? We have a BIG tree... it's a real nice artifical one... but so big... really to big for this room... So I would like to "down size" our tree... But it needs to look are realistic as possible... they have some really good ones out there... Found one today, BUT... I think I still bought too big...UGH! So back to measure better, or return it before it even comes in for the next size, more of a slim line tree...UGH! Hate this part... So hopefully that will be all fixed tomorrow.... and then, sadly I guess I will be as ready as I can be to start decorating in a couple of weeks.... Sending thoughts and prayers to everyone on the East Coast and in the path of Sandy, sigh, she sure did leave a mess! Hugs! OLM
